First injection of Copaxone

Completed! Didn't use the autoinjector... just did the needle with the nurse here, all by myself! :) Didn't hurt at all (tummy injection). After, the medicine burned a little, but overall it wasn't bad. I didn't even ice/heat before or after, and if the injections are like this each time, I don't think I'd need to bother with that.

:D ...

Hearing Test

I went and had my hearing tested last week, because for the past year or so I've been having a hard time hearing people, especially at meetings or when I'm outside or on a cell phone. And my husband tells me I always have the TV up too loud.

Question about PPMS...

For those of you that have PPMS, can I ask how it started? I'm still in the pre-diagnosis phase and i'm scared it might be the progressive kind. I know it's a little bit less likely because i'm 22, female, and it started with my eyes, but my eyes haven't resolved yet and as i mentioned before really the only other symptom would be getting achey/weak legs (only) around that time of the month (that ...

Just when I was doing so well...

Ugh. So I started to clean my house today, throwing stuff out, organizing... I knew I felt fatigued after I was done the work, so I decided to stay cool and just relax for the rest of the day. I noticed the burning mouth thing was worse, that the pain in my neck was worse, etc.

Come tonight when I can honestly say, it feels like I'm relapsing. I spoke to my realtor by phone ...
